    Brain endothelial cell TRPA1 channels initiate neurovascular coupling

    Pratish Thakore et al.
    Activation of TRPA1 channels on cerebral capillary endothelial cells initiates a retrograde signal that propagates and dilates upstream arterioles.

    VEGF signaling regulates the fate of obstructed capillaries in mouse cortex

    Patrick Reeson et al.
    Mapping the fate of clogged brain capillaries reveals that VEGF signaling plays a critical role in dictating whether capillaries regain blood flow and persist or are pruned from the vascular tree.

    PTPRG is an ischemia risk locus essential for HCO3-dependent regulation of endothelial function and tissue perfusion

    Kristoffer B Hansen et al.
    HCO3-sensitive regulation of endothelium-dependent vasorelaxation by receptor-type tyrosine-protein phosphatase RPTPγ provides a novel mechanism for acid-base-mediated coordination of cerebrovascular perfusion during increased local metabolism and for protection against ischemia.

    Oscillatory hyperactivity and hyperconnectivity in young APOE-ɛ4 carriers and hypoconnectivity in Alzheimer’s disease

    Loes Koelewijn et al.
    Electrophysiology pinpoints brain function abnormalities in young people genetically at risk of developing Alzheimer's disease much later in life, supporting theories of initial hyperconnectivity driving eventual profound disconnection.

    Mechanistic insights into a TIMP3-sensitive pathway constitutively engaged in the regulation of cerebral hemodynamics

    Carmen Capone et al.
    Extracellular matrix signaling constitutively regulates cerebral blood flow in both physiological and pathological settings.

    Vascular control of the CO2/H+-dependent drive to breathe

    Colin M Cleary et al.
    Understanding how loss of CO2/H+ vascular reactivity affects respiratory control may facilitate development of treatments for breathing problems in this population.

    Endothelial cell-type-specific molecular requirements for angiogenesis drive fenestrated vessel development in the brain

    Sweta Parab et al.
    Identification of a developmental mechanism critical for the generation of brain vessel heterogeneity.

    Neuroprotective effects of TRPA1 channels in the cerebral endothelium following ischemic stroke

    Paulo Wagner Pires, Scott Earley
    Acute hypoxia activates TRPA1 channels in cerebral artery endothelial cells to activate an early adaptive response to reduce tissue ischemic damage through vasodilation.

    Epithelial cells supply Sonic Hedgehog to the perinatal dentate gyrus via transport by platelets

    Youngshik Choe et al.
    During development the Sonic Hedgehog protein is produced by epithelial structures and acts at a distance in the brain and perhaps in other organs.
